Uygur, Tibetan and Mongolian songs and dances were performed by the China National Ethnic Song and Dance Ensemble.

Chinese tenors and sopranos sang popular hits like "Five Star Red Flag", "My Homeland and I", "We Are Soldiers", which aroused homesickness from some in the audience.

The gala was organized by the Overseas Chinese Affair Office of the State Council. The art troupe has performed in the UK, Belgium, Italy, New Zealand, Australia and the US. Toronto is the seventh and last stop of troupe's North American tour.
